Thread: First Midge Bite !!

  1. #1

    Unhappy First Midge Bite !!

    Out tonight for a mooch around and sad to report that the little midgey blighters are back! Got my first midge bite, and seen a few roe couched up flicking their ears so definitely enough to get them agitated! This leads me to the question, how is everyone planning on dealing with the little sods this year?

    Tough It out, stay on the move.

    Skin so soft in the trees out of the wind.

    Then midge net for sitting still.

    Antihistamine, for those that get through

    Last night was a balmy night, hardly a breath of wind after heavy rain. A good night for stalking, but also a good night for flesh eating midges, mind you they weren't nearly as bad as it seems you have em! I have a midge jersey, but as the weather gets warmer its like having another layer of clothing on, ideal for sitting waiting though but not great for walking around in.

    All things considered its better than being a hay fever sufferer.
